REVELL 1/18 WIESMANN ROADSTER COLOR A


In the beginning, as with many individually built cars, there was a dream.This was the case with the brothers Martin and Friedhelm Wiesmann who, in 1985, came up with the idea of building a made-to-measure car developed and designed by them. It was not realised until 1993 when a small series was produced. This agile, hand-crafted two-seater from the workshop in Dülmen offers individualists intoxicating performance combined with classical but timeless lines.

Opulent, but also attractive and sporty the Roadster presents itself with a long sweeping bonnet finished off with a rounded rear which fires an enthusiasm that many a major manufacturer longs for. The cockpit is also dazzling, finished with top quality chrome and leather fittings from the firm's own workshop. It is not only the design of the MF 3 that satisfies the highest requirements. Dynamic handling characteristics prove the Roadster to be a real thoroughbred sportster. The technology, suspension, axles and gears come from the BMW M range, so that the MF 3 hides under its bonnet a powerful, water-cooled, 6-cylinder in-line engine with a capacity of 3.2 litres and 343 bhp.

The workmanship and harmony of all its parts give it a really spectacular performance. In addition to a powerful burst of speed, the Roadster offers perfect traction and accurate cornering, together with neutral handling characteristics at its performance limits. It sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5 seconds and has a top speed of 255 km/h See more
